    The financial and operating results for the fiscal quarter ended October 26, 2012 include a $1.3 million gain on warrant liability. The impact of this gain has been excluded for the purposes of non-GAAP comparisons between the fiscal quarter ended October 25, 2013 and the fiscal quarter ended October 26, 2012. As discussed below under "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures," in this release, the company refers to and makes comparisons with certain non-GAAP financial measures including adjusted non-GAAP net income, and adjusted non-GAAP income per diluted share.  Investors should consider non-GAAP measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for or superior to, financial performance measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.  Please refer to the attached non-GAAP reconciliation. Numbers may be affected by rounding.Results and objectives"The second quarter of fiscal 2014 was another record quarter for sales, operating income and income per diluted share," commented Dan Moore, Cyberonics' President and Chief Executive Officer.  "Our U.S. sales team provided another strong performance with a record quarter in both unit sales and net product sales.  Our estimates suggest that new patient additions in absolute numbers were the highest in eight years, while estimates of replacement growth rates are consistent with those provided in our annual guidance.

    "International unit sales were well ahead of the second quarter of last year, with Europe continuing to deliver unit growth in double digits.  Foreign exchange movements favorably impacted sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 by approximately $200,000 compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2013.  On a constant currency basis, the increase in international sales was 8.5%, with a higher proportion of our international sales coming from distributors.

    "Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter was $26 million, and our balance sheet remains healthy, with available cash and short-term investments of $123 million.

    "We are particularly pleased to have delivered on one of our key product development goals for fiscal 2014 with the submission this quarter of the AspireSR generator for regulatory approval in Europe.  This regulatory filing marks an important milestone for the entire product development team.  We continued to enroll patients in the first phase of our E-37 U.S. clinical study for the AspireSR generator and expect to complete enrollment by the end of the fiscal year.

    "Significant and positive product development work continued on both the Relay™ and ProGuardian™ platform technologies during the quarter, and our product development investment is likely to be higher in the third quarter as we strive to bring these products to submission-ready status.  As previously advised, we completed enrollment in the ANTHEM-HF study assessing Autonomic Regulation Therapy (ART™) for patients with chronic heart failure in the first quarter.  We plan to determine next steps in this program once the six month follow-up results are available," concluded Mr. Moore.

    Stock Repurchase UpdateDuring the recently completed quarter, Cyberonics repurchased 480,000 shares on the open market, leaving 260,000 shares available to be repurchased under the current program, which is expected to be completed in the current fiscal year.  

    Fiscal 2014 guidanceCyberonics is increasing guidance for fiscal 2014 as follows:

  • Net sales are expected to be in the range of $281 million to $285 million (previous guidance of $279 million to $283 million).
  • Adjusted non-GAAP income from operations is expected to be in the range of $86 million to $88 million (previous guidance of $85 million to $88 million).
  •  Adjusted non-GAAP net income for fiscal 2014 is expected to be in the range from $54 million to $56 million (previous guidance of $53 million to $56 million).
  • Adjusted non-GAAP diluted earnings per share (EPS) will be in the range from $1.97 to $2.03 (previous guidance of $1.93 to $2.01).
  • Guidance for income from operations, net income and diluted earnings per share (EPS) was adjusted by $7.4 million, $4.8 million (net of tax) and $0.17 cents per share respectively, for the litigation settlement recorded in the first quarter of fiscal 2014.

    Additional details will be provided during today's conference call and in an investor presentation summarizing the company's first quarter results, which is available in the investor relations section of Cyberonics' corporate website at http://www.cyberonics.com.

    Use of non-GAAP financial measuresIn this press announcement, management has disclosed financial measurements that present financial information not in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP).  These measurements are not a substitute for GAAP measurements, although company management uses these measurements as aids in monitoring the company's ongoing financial performance from quarter to quarter and year to year on a regular basis and for benchmarking against other medical technology companies.  Adjusted non-GAAP income from operations, adjusted non-GAAP net income and adjusted non-GAAP income per diluted share measure the income from operations, net income and income per diluted share of the company excluding unusual items.  Management uses and presents these measures because management believes that such adjustments facilitate an understanding of the financial impact of unusual items on the company's short- and long-term financial trends.  Management also uses adjusted non-GAAP items to forecast and to evaluate the operational performance of the company, as well as to compare results of current periods to prior periods on a consistent basis.  Adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) measures the adjusted non-GAAP income from operations of the company and excludes the aforementioned items, as well as non-cash equity compensation and other income (expense) items.

    Non-GAAP financial measures used by the company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly-titled measures used by other companies.  Investors should consider non-GAAP measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial performance measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.

    Please refer to the attached reconciliations between GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures.
